Sustainability charter

As stated in Shiperise’s articles of association, its mission is to enact a significant positive impact on the society and the environment through its operational and commercial activities. To achieve this, Shiperise promotes, supports, develops the design, prototyping, production, storage and marketing of sustainable products. Shiperise undertakes to publish a yearly ‘impact report’, summarizing the evolution of key performance indicators (KPIs) and the societal and environmental impact achieved by each product funded on the platform.

Product choice

Shiperise's investment decisions in products depend upon various factors, primarily the materials utilized in their fabrication and their impact, based on predetermined criteria established by the company. Each product must demonstrate compliance with at least one of Shiperise’s 9 impact areas.


Shiperise engages in the trading of products incorporating a minimum of 50% recycled materials, or alternatively, those comprising at least 50% recyclable materials, as long as an identified recycling process is offered to the customer at the time the product is sold. Additionally, products facilitating a significant reduction in waste generation, sanctioned and financed by the local authority, or enabling substantial cuts in CO2 emissions and/or pollutants during end-user utilization, compared to prevailing norms, are considered. This assessment extends to product components, proportionate to their mass within the final product.

Impact assessment

There is particular attention provided to following dimensions in the client selection process :

Sustainable design

Products are designed for sustainability. This means products are made from recycled material or are designed to be easily re-use or recycled. The largest proportion of raw material used in the production should be either recycled or can be recycled. Clients will provide the list of raw material used and provenance.

Circular economy

Products from brands and companies that have implemented a cradle-to-cradle process

Excluded sectors & products

Certain sectors and products are ineligible for consideration, including those associated with fossil energy production or direct consumption, weapons or dangerous devices (incl. robots where technology is not excluding army use), chemicals harmful to biodiversity and living organism in general, chlorine production, nuclear energy production or related devices, gambling devices or betting devices where money or recurrent subscription is required, addictive substances or socially harmful media (alcool, tabacco, online games, adult contents,etc.) and genetically modified organisms.
